Become a much better leader
“I thought I was a charismatic leader.
Did I have blind spots?
As I thought I knew myself well, I would have answered: “NO.”
By definition blind spots are blind to us, not to other people. During our 35 years of experience, we had the pleasure of meeting senior executives, many with an exceptional caliber, but like all human beings, they too had blind spots.
How do we obtain such results?
Look at your staff: their behaviors show their blind spots. Some want to be right at all costs, some want praise, some have the “best idea.” Who is ACTUALLY listening at work or at home? Can we call that communication? These are automatic unconscious behaviors. We are not different from them, we also have automatic UNCONSCIOUS counterproductive behaviors. These are ‘needs’ of our ego, not true needs and they deplete everybody’s energy.
The most efficient executives are those who are interested in finding their blind spots. When you identify them, you automatically become a much better leader, you reduce your stress level and Joy begins to replace satisfaction, relationships improve at work and at home and you learn to find power in feedback rather than feeling criticized. You also learn the ability to have difficult conversations when needed.
At LEO Institute we help you to develop talents.
Do you wish to auto-evaluate your leadership skills?
Improve your Team
Meeting rooms are a good place to evaluate a team and also to identify many of the counterproductive and dysfunctional dynamics. Some people want to be right at all cost, others intoxicate with their negative attitude or sarcasm, some care only about their speech, some do not contribute to conversations. VERY FEW ACTUALLY LISTEN.
Therefore most of the time the sum of 1 + 1 is less than 2. When team members identify their counterproductive dynamics and take commitments about them, work becomes more efficient and the joy of working together rises. When your colleagues are no more competitors, 1+1 becomes more than 2.
How can you evaluate the situation of your team?
Although you probably already know the answer inside of you, the following questions can help:
- When a team member fails, are the rest of the team really disappointed?
- When a team member has an idea, do the other members develop it until they reach a final conclusion?
How does it work?
Our seminar format helps each team member to identify their part in the counterproductive dynamics in order to stop them. Usually they also decide the consequences in case they don’t eliminate those dynamics.
To make sure that your team is going in the right direction towards success, in our programs we help you controlling the evolution every month.

Improve your Life
How would it be if you could live the life you imagine?
If you choose this option, you have probably already realized that to succeed IN life and to succeed YOUR life are totally different things. Many top executives devote most of their time and effort every day to work with the excitement of succeeding IN life. They often forget to stop and wonder if they are really succeeding THEIR life.
“My life was a to do list. I was most of the time in duty, doing my best. My wife and children neither felt understood nor supported. I was working very hard and was absent a lot. In very rare occasions I asked myself ‘is there more to it?’ The excitement of succeeding IN life though did not make me ask myself if I was succeeding MY life.
One day I stopped for a few months my pursue of succeeding IN life. My wife Claire had a melanoma in the eye and was given a few months to live. I wanted these few months to be great. I stopped travelling, we stopped arguing, what was really essential became essential again.
At my biggest surprise – probably as you have also experienced yourself – things started happening when I let go of wanting to get them!
Because of the situation, I had to let go of the need to succeed and prove my value. The interesting thing about this dramatic situation was that I started to learn what it meant to succeed MY life. My emotional intelligence improved, my communication and human skills also. More important, Joy entered our life and as a consequence I started succeeding IN life besides succeeding MY life.”
At LEO Institute we say: “Don’t give up on Joy. You have the right to a joyful life.”
If you don’t have the joy you think you deserve we invite you to attend the LEO Programs.

Making Others Good is part of our methodology. Shayne Hughes tells of two directors in a large technology company whose conflict created an Us vs. Them power struggle between their teams, delaying several products and hurting the company’s competitiveness – and how the resolution launched it ahead of industry benchmarks.
This dynamic – what we call “Making Others Bad” – is happening right now in every large organization. Whether it is passive aggressiveness, criticizing, undermining or gossiping, this counterproductive behavior is why teams of very smart people can function below the sum of their collective talents.
Making Others Good identifies ten ways people Make Others Bad and why, as well as six steps to shift to Making Others Good – an organization’s greatest competitive advantage.
